Shadow Box

Morning everyone,

We have actually had a couple of sunny days here this week, but the rain is back again now.

I have a project from the 'Studio 12 Picknix collection CD' to show you today, which can also be found on the Studio 12 blog today too.  If you haven't visited the blog yet, it features loads of fantastic projects from the Studio 12 design team, illustrating just what you can do with the CD, so pop over and take a peek.

This project is a Shadow Box and uses digital images from the 'Heavenly Garden' section of the CD.  Some of the images have been used digitally and some have been printed off and cut out, before using.  Here's what it looks like ...

The projects consists of two pieces of A5 card and two concertina spine dividers.  I just adore the tree image with the cute little tree houses in and wanted this to be the main focal point of the project.  I printed both the tree house and the cloud onto a piece of plain paper and stuck it onto the back piece of A5 card.  I made a frame out of the second piece of A5 card and covered this with paper from the collection.  I added acetate into the window space and added the fence and watering can behind the acetate.  The extra flowers, leaves and bunting were added to the front of the window.  A cute little sentiment from the collection finishes off the project.  It is difficult to see the dimension in the photo, but it does have some depth in real life, making a cool 3D project.  Hope you like it :)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Hugz, Jan xx
